Poured a clear, pale yellow with a HUGE head of coarse bubbles that was gone in 15 seconds. Absolutely no lace.
Smell was minimal, just some hops and a hint of vinegar hiding in the background.
Taste, what there was of it, was just hops. A bitterness, not from the hops, comes on at the end and gets much more pronounced as the beer warms up until this stuff becomes completely undrinkable.
Mouthfeel is just fizzy, no body at all. It feels like bitter, fizzy water, which it is.
With so many quality lagers available to purchase, I cannot fathom why anyone would choose this dreck. No flavor, no redeeming qualities at all unless it is ice-cold and you have nothing else to drink.

Sampled this evening on 7/9/14 and had this one many times over the years but surprised they still made it as I haven't seen it. Love the old 'lava lamp' style brown bottle it came in 20 years ago. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 'Michelob" glass goblet.
Pours a lighter golden color with a very thin white head that settles just to around the sides of the glass. Very little spotty lacing is seen but not much really. The aroma isn't much, just of some grassy grain for the most part with a hint of sweet corn. The taste is about the same with a slight sweet finish. Much more flavor and tastes better than their more popular "Michelob Ultra" which I didn't care much for. Medium carbonation. Overall, not bad and close to the flavor from 20 years ago that I remember.
